Of the issues that it does seem to solve are the following:
- begin and end iterator does not need to be the same (because there is
not two iterators)
- simpler specification, better error messages (iterators are somewhat
This has a some irritating implications, like forcing us to store two
predicates etc. I haven't done any benchmarking to see how much this is
actually a problem.
However, I donÃ¸t think RangeEx should try to do this design. That's a
job for Boost.RangeExEx, or some GSOC project.
Also note that with the new C++0x features, we should be able to
handle that the begin and end iterator are different types.
